The Snaefellsnes peninsula in the West of Iceland is almost like a miniature version of the entire island. The area has beautiful samples of most of the natural landscapes that make Iceland so famous. This includes black beaches, magnificent mountains, volcanic craters, incredible birdlife, magical caves, and of course, the most picturesque glacier of them all, Snaefellsjokull. Part of the peninsula makes up Snaefellsjokull National Park, the country's only coastal national park.
This tour visits the small fishing village of Arnarstapi and provides real insight into quintessential volcanic craters. Along the way youll get great views of the iconic Kirkjufell mountain (famous from Game of Thrones), and the dark cliffs and black sand of Djupalonssandur bay are a favorite among photographers.
In the middle of this beautiful peninsula sits Snæfellsjökull, the stunning glacier that has captured the imagination of people all over the world, including Jules Verne who mentioned it in his novel Journey to the Centre of the Earth. You'll enjoy grand views of this beautiful volcano glacier. It is, after all, the real star of the show.
